OH BROTHER! is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. <P>This crisp, straw-colored ale is blessed with a host of spicy and fruity aromas. We brew it from pilsener malt, candy sugar and some very non-traditional hop choices. But hey, we never said we were monks. Weíre just brothers.

Bottle. Hazy golden yellow color, scant white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is also very sweet and a bit plain.

Leighton (12635) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger, NYC. Pours a cloudy, glowing fold with a pillowy, white head. Pleasing aroma of banana, apple, honey, clove, orange and Belgian sugar. Flavor is very sweet with mild phenols, coriander and apple. Medium in body with restrained carbonation and some warmth. Finishes sweet with light alcohol. A take on the style.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of banana, floral, honey, sourdough, apple cider vinegar, and orange. Flavor of banana, orange peel, clove, coriander, white pepper, and some apple with a soft mouthfeel. This was a pleasant surprise. Excellent tripel!

Bottle from Dilly Deli shared by shigadeyo. Poured hazy yellow color with an moderate fizzy white head that mostly lasted with minimal lacing. Moderate yeasty sweet citrus aroma. Medium body. Medium sweet & sour citrus flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where not met.

Lubiere (10642) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2006
Hazy blonde al with a thcik white head. Light coriander malt aroma, with light orange notes. In mouth, sour lactic notes overpowers the light candy sugar of the malt. Some orange peels noted, but the stringent sourness makes this a biut unpleasant. Guys, stick to the british style.

Sammy (9141) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2009
A good drinker, this is a very yellow beer wih white head, and a significant white head at that. Lacey, sweet yeasty and smooth drinker. WIth pilsner malt you say? Edgy not the most drinkable this holiday, but a nice Belgium.

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2009
This beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a medium thick and foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, grassy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of yeast, citrus, hops and malt. The finish is yeasty with mild spice and malt left over. Above average overall.

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Overly sweet for the style, this Tripel attempt showcases orange peel and egg pie wackiness in a hefty body marred by tart manneurisms.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy orangey blond.
-Soapy notes delve into bubblegum in the nose.
-Citrusy wheat seems confused.
-This is a good example of how Americanized Tripels can be off the mark. Then again, itís hard to believe this bottle contained the brew they really wanted to get...

Light-orange beer, very sparkling hue, some hazyness; good white head, fine and with slightly orange taint. White candy sugar, as well as the inevitable citrus. Fruity and vinous nose, dried apricots, botrytis. Dry orange peel, touch of spiciness, tinned mandarine parts on juice, and I cannot exactly place the spice. Quite dry, whilst spritzy MF despite little visible carbonation. Very original taste - even when I would rather call it Belgian strong ale than a classic tripel. Fusel alcohols, real ethanol is very well hidden. Big thanks to Lachesis, who brought me what Jason and Jim didnít - but itís great, brothers!

22oz 2012 bottle. Belgian-style yeast, banana, light spice. Lightly sweet, and spicy taste. Little bitter. Alcohol is well hidden. Soft, smooth carbonation, medium body. Dry texture. Mostly clear, golden color. Little white head. Little lace. Enjoyable tripel, well done.
